CrossRef has launched an initiative to help publishers verify the originality of scholarly content. Following on the success of CrossRef’s recent pilot of CrossCheck, this service is now open to all CrossRef member publishers.

CrossRef partnered with iParadigms, LLC, in creating CrossCheck powered by iThenticate. CrossRef members who choose to participate can verify the originality of works submitted for publication using the iParadigms iThenticate service to check against a database of proprietary as well as open web content.

The CrossCheck database is already slated to cover over 20 million journal articles from the following participating publishers: Association for Computing Machinery, American Society of Neuroradiology, BMJ Publishing Group, Elsevier, Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, International Union of Crystallography, Nature Publishing Group, Oxford University Press, Sage, Informa UK (Taylor & Francis), and Wiley Blackwell.
